We are delighted that certain in person volunteer opportunities are now available and listed on the Motiv website. We understand that due to COVID-19 there is an increased health risk to public gatherings, including some volunteer opportunities, and have used our best judgement to only post safe service projects. Individual nonprofits listed on Motiv have their own safety and COVID-19 response policies. We ask that you appropriately research these policies for any service opportunity listed on Motiv before deciding to volunteer. Your safety is our top priority.
